We have just returned from a long weekend break at Hilltop Cottage. I highly recommend this property…from our initial enquiry, right through to the end of our stay there were no hitches. It was straight forward and very easy. The cottage itself is wonderful. There’s full instructions about where to find things and how things work (should you not be too sure). There is plenty of coal, logs, kindle and fur lighters for the awesome fire. An abundance of candles and even milk in the fridge (and biscuits!). Everything was spotless and you had everything you could need. The area is a great base and the village has a lovely pub and beautiful walks right from the door. Don’t forget to take a look at the castle (it’s lit up at night). We would definitely book again when visiting this part of the country.

The village of Bowes is a beautiful area, which was made even better by this choice of accommodation. The cottage is spacious and has everything you need for your stay. There was more than enough logs/coal (not that we really needed it as weather was great!). Also, there is a welcome pack which shows you how to use everything and where everything is.  Plus, the owners where available if we needed anything.  The garden is a little sun trap and you could see birds nesting, which was lovely. Bowes castle is right behind the property which leads down to the river which was beautiful and a great walk for dogs. Barnard Castle is only 5 minutes away, which is a lovely little market town with lots of shops/cafes/pubs/restaurants. There is a nice little pub right across the road which serves lovely food and also had a band on and a seating area at the back. All in all I would definitely stay here again and recommend Hilltop to friends and family. Thank You!

  1. My husband , 4 year old son, 2 dogs and myself have just returned from a long snowy weekend here at Hilltop Cottage . From initial enquiry to getting there the owners were great , and left some lovely touches , such as milk , biscuits including biscuits for our 4 legged friends . The cottage itself is lovely , cosy and homely and with the candles and log burner lit on a night it was to cosy to explore the area.
    The village itself has a lovely pub 2 minutes down the road and Barnard castle a short drive away . We loved our stay here and would recommend it to anyone and everyone .
